This summer, The Peninsula Spa by ESPA is offering Manhattanites a sky-high escape from the urban jungle with the re-opening of its outdoor wraparound Sun Terrace. Featuring stunning city skyline views, the 2,700-square-foot open-air space features loungers, dining tables, outdoor spa treatments, and yoga classes. Normally reserved exclusively for hotel guests, New Yorkers can gain access to the Sun Terrace and the Spa’s entire facility by becoming a Summer Fitness Member ($500 per month), booking a mid-week “Spa-cation” package ($285), or reserving a minimum of two hours of treatments Friday through Sunday.
The new Sun Terrace expands upon the chic elegance of The Spa, utilizing rich saffron and russet colored fabrics and teak accent furnishings that complement the subtle hues of gray and brown that forms the environment. Relaxing sun loungers and tables for outdoor dining create a zen environment to enjoy the captivating city views. The Terrace’s amenities include a food and beverage menu complete with cooling fruit smoothies and fresh seasonal dishes. A full-time attendant provides a never-ending supply of sun block, chilled hand towels and bottled water.
For the fitness-minded, complimentary outdoor sunrise yoga classes are held three times per week at 7 a.m. on the Sun Terrace. The Fitness Center’s personal trainers are also available to customize outdoor training sessions so that guests can enjoy the fresh air and city views while engaging in a tough workout.
Sounds to me like the perfect place to enjoy summer in the city. I know where I’ll be spending my weekends!
